Summertime Berries!

Hello All!

WOW! It has been a busy day at my house today. This morning at the crack of dawn my husband and I headed out to pick strawberries. Best to get their early before the sun roasts you and the swarm of people arrive. We picked 19 Quarts of berries in about 45 minutes. Came home and started the process of cleaning, slicing and making homemade strawberry jam. Oh, my goodness it is the best stuff ever! I made 40 jars of jam (so far) and still have 13 quarts of berries left-AUGH!!!!!!!

I have cut some for shortcake, cuz really now it is not summer without a fresh made strawberry shortcake :)

I sent some home with some frineds that stopped by today, and I now have 10 quarts left to make up tomarrow for more jam.

As all of my berries were sitting on the table I was inspired. The little green vintage baskets would make the great holders for some bits and bobs for ATC's!

So after the day was finished I went to the craft room, took a few baskets and strated creating.

I have enclosed a picture of "the fruits of my labor" and my inspirations!

Have a Great Day!
You can find them on ETsy in my store
